    Not Bizarre....but intersting

    After 10 years, brain-damaged man perks up
    Firefighter injured in roof collapse makes astounding recovery

    It was the first of many conversations the 44-year-old patient had with his wife, four sons and other family and friends during a 14-hour stretch, Herbert’s uncle, Simon Manka said.

    “How long have I been away?” Herbert asked.

    “We told him almost 10 years,” the uncle said. “He thought it was only three months.”

    Herbert was fighting a house fire Dec. 29, 1995, when the roof collapsed, burying him under debris. After going without air for several minutes, Herbert was comatose for 2 1/2 months and has undergone therapy ever since.

    News accounts in the days and years after his injury describe Herbert as blind and with little, if any, memory. Video shows him receiving physical therapy but apparently unable to communicate and with little awareness of his surroundings.
